This is my 12th year teaching (11th in 4th grade). Two years ago I switched from regular 4th grade to 4th grade AIG, which has been fun and challenging in a different way.
I'm all about working together in groups, class discussion, digging deep and having as much fun as possible! As is indicated in my store, I'm obsessed with teaching novels. I love to read and want my students to feel the same!

Aside from teaching, I enjoy traveling, college basketball, and leading my church youth group. I love spending time with friends and family, especially my husband Brent and our dog, Skittles. We love the mountains and the beach as well as dorky board games. Mostly we just love life! graphics courtesy of a bird in hand designs
